NEW YORK -- Jason Spezza has requested a trade, and Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray says hell try to make that happen. "I dont want to trade the guy, really, and I know I wont get the value, in all likelihood that I should get for him," Murray said Wednesday after the NHL general managers meeting. "But I think that Jason feels maybe theres a change that he would like to have happen, and if thats the case well try to do what we can." Spezza, who replaced Daniel Alfredsson as Ottawas captain, has one year left on his contract at a salary of US$4 million and cap hit of $7 million. The 30-year-old centre has a modified no-trade clause that allows him to submit a list of 10 teams he would not accept a trade to. Murray said that a few teams have already asked about Spezza, even though Wednesdays meeting was too busy to advance many talks. He expects trade chatter to pick up in the next few weeks leading up to the draft, which runs June 27 and 28 in Philadelphia. If the Senators do trade Spezza as has been speculated for some time, it would likely not be for just prospects and/or draft picks. "Obviously Id like to win a hockey game next year, so getting a player back that can play in the league, that has played in the league, would be important," Murray said. Spezza led all Senators forwards in scoring last season with 23 goals and 43 assists. In 686 career NHL games, the native of Mississauga, Ont., has 687 points. Ottawa went 37-31-14 and finished five points out of a playoff spot this season. Ben McLemore Jersey
. "I just think what it does for everybody in life is real simple," said Babcock early on Friday afternoon. "You dont give in. You just keep on keeping on. Is it going to go your way every time? No. But you choose your attitude and how you perform and how hard you dig in." Nearly four years to the day of the 2010 gold medal match in Vancouver, his team dug in with its best effort of these Olympics, snuffing out the high-powered Americans for another opportunity at gold.

Boy, did Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos flip that script in a hurry. Manning overcame four turnovers and Denver overcame a two-touchdown deficit Sunday to score the last 38 points in what turned into a 45-21 runaway over the former Denver coachs current team, the Washington Redskins. "You cant give Peyton that many opportunities because hes going to take advantage of it," said Shanahan, coaching in Denver for the first time since the Broncos fired him in 2008. Manning threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns and the Denver defence came up with a season-high five turnovers -- more than enough to overcome three interceptions and a lost fumble by the Broncos quarterback. "That stuff happens in football," Manning said. "We havent had a ton of that, but the fact we were able to overcome it was critical." After DeAngelo Hall returned one of Mannings interceptions 26 yards for a 21-7 lead, Manning began a meticulous run of football that saw the Broncos (7-1) use a total of 27 plays to go 75 and 83 yards for touchdowns that tied the game. "With Peyton," Redskins safety Jordan Pugh said, "the points are always there." So are the yards. Manning hit the halfway point of the season with 2,919 yards -- most through eight games in NFL history. Trying to match him on this day was Robert Griffin III, who finished 15 for 30 for 132 yards, one score and two interceptions before leaving with a hurt left knee. Afterward, he said it was fine. Tied at 21, Griffin threw three straight incompletions and Sav Rocca followed by shanking a punt 15 yards. On the next play, Manning gave Denver a 28-21 lead with a screen pass Knowshon Moreno took in for a 35-yard touchdown. Von Miller ended the next drive with his first sack and forced fumble of the season to set up a Denver field goal for a 10-point lead, and Washington (2-5) never got closer. "It was like a blur," Hall said. "Someone asked me, What went wrong, what happened? To be brutally honest, I dont remember. I looked up one point, 21-7, felt good, everybody smiling. Turned around and it ... was 38-21." The Broncos made it 45-21 when Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off backup Kirk Cousins and returned the interception 75 yards. Denver came in with the leagues worst pass defence, but that will probably change.dddddddddddd Also getting interceptions were Chris Harris, Rahim Moore and Shaun Phillips. "The first half didnt go the way we planned," Rodgers-Cromartie said. "Coming out in the second half, the main thing coach said was go out there and fight, dont look at the scoreboard, wait until its zeros in the fourth quarter and look up and I promise you, youll like where we are." Denver is putting up video-game numbers. This week, the Broncos scored a franchise-record 31 points in the fourth quarter, which gave them 343 for the season. Thats an average of 42.8 and the most through eight games in NFL history. But all those numbers are masking some problems as the Broncos reach their bye, with two games against division-leading Kansas City looming. Most notably, Manning has not looked as sharp the last three weeks as he did the first five. Yes, he went 30 for 44 and hit four receivers for scores: Moreno, Joel Dreessen, Thomas and Wes Welker, who scored for a career-high ninth time. But Manning doubled his interceptions total for the season and lost a fumble, bringing Denvers season total to 11 lost fumbles. In all, the quarterback simply didnt look as comfortable as he did the first five weeks, before he sprained an ankle that forced him to miss his first regular-season practice as a Bronco last week. He didnt want to speculate on the injuries but said hell take a lot from the way the Broncos came back against Washington. "No panic. No finger pointing," Manning said. "Just determined." Shanahan, meanwhile, fell to 88-32 as a head coach in Denvers stadium, including a win with the Raiders in 1988. The bad ending was a splash of cold water for the coach who brought the only two Super Bowl trophies to Denver. And on a day that began with such promise: a video tribute, a warm ovation from the fans and that two-touchdown lead. "Its very easy to get kind of fired up, especially coming back here and wanting to win the football game," Shanahan said. "Thats why its disappointing when you have the opportunity there in the third quarter and you dont take advantage of those opportunities." Notes: Broncos S Duke Ihenacho and TE Julius Thomas left the game with ankle injuries. ... The Broncos finished 4-0 against the NFC East this season by a combined score of 189-112. ... The Redskins five defensive touchdowns this year mark the most since 1994.
